The chairs and other members of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary were presented with oral testimony from over fifty supporters of HB 1722. The session was scheduled to start at 1pm, but MTPC-organized testimony began at about 3. Most people testifying had to wait in the overheated hearing room for many hours before testifying. Some cancelled evening appointments in order to participate. The session lasted over 10 hours, finally drawing to a close at 11:30pm.
